So just buy an already setup, tested, and warranted computer from
someone who knows what they are doing. Then, ***do not update it
yourself*** - use it as is just like a dedicated piece of equipment.
Down the road, get that same person who knows what they are doing to
update it for you or build you a new one.

I am not saying that these problems do not exist, and things can get
better for those who don't mind knowing a bit. I am saying thought
that for the person who does not want to know anything, they can avoid
the knowing somewhat if they will take an approach along the lines
